Actor Shaun Weiss, who played Goldberg in the 1992 sports comedy film The Mighty Ducks and its sequels was arrested early Saturday morning, 4 August 2018, for “being under the influence of drugs,” according to law enforcement in Oroville, California, who confirmed a TMZ report:

Weiss was sentenced to 90 days in county jail in August 2017 after being arrested on a methamphetamine charge, an arrest that came just days after he had been released from jail (where he served only 12 days of a 150-day sentence due to overcrowding) on a petty theft charge.
